Try this:
Ensure that the counters are not disabled in the registry


The counters may be disabled via registry settings. Please check the following registry locations to ensure that the counters have not been disabled.

HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\%servicename%\Performance

%servicename% represents any service with a performance counter. For example: PerfDisk, PerfOS, etc.


There may be registry keys for "DisablePerformanceCounters" in any of these locations. As per the following TechNet article, this value should be set to 0. If the value is anything other than 0 the counter may be disabled.

To rebuild all Performance counters including extensible and third-party counters, type the following commands at an Administrative command prompt. Press ENTER after each command.

Rebuilding the counters:
cd c:\windows\system32
lodctr /R
cd c:\windows\sysWOW64
lodctr /R

Resyncing the counters with Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI):
WINMGMT.EXE /RESYNCPERF

Stop and restart the Performance Logs and Alerts service.
Stop and restart the Windows Management Instrumentation service.

If it's working correctly after doing the previous procedure, than something is breaking the counters when you are rebooting. This can be anything, anti-virus, some applications that start with your system.
Can't tell, you will have to check what program. Is causing this as ISLC required theses and cannot be fixed by me.

The reason it worked for you on older versions is because I was using different and imprecise way to get memory information.

In a future version, I'll add some more error handling so it won't crash silently and instead pop a box with some error / reasons of why it crashed

Very good idea, thank you for this nice piece of software!

I'd like to run ISLC at startup (but only for a given user). I tried to put a shortcut to the program here:

C:\Users\MyName\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

But when I log in Windows 10, ISLC is not launched. I tried to create a bat file, but the long name of the EXE seems to cause an issue. I put the following command:

start "Intelligent standby list cleaner ISLC.exe"

but it just opens a new command line window. If I rename the EXE to just "ISLC.EXE", then the start command works, but for some reason, the settings are not saved.

Ideally, it would be great to have an option to run the program at startup (for the current user). If it's not possible, renaming the EXE to just "ISLC.EXE" might help with creating a batch file?

Thank you very much!
ISLC require administrator right to run.
for starting the application at a user logon, I suggest you use the TaskScheduler. you can set for witch user and set it to run with admin privilege.
Or you could just right click on the .exe, go to the compatibility tab, click on change settings for all users and check run this with administrator privileges.

Hi,

thank you very much for the program, it works great.
I do however have a little bug-report.
With W10 1809 you can specifically increase the font size of windows (not overall dpi) and well the picture below shows what that looks like.
